This one of three buildings that form a “Hub” area at the Hinkley development for high growth science and technology companies. Phase One was completed in 2016, Phase 2 in 2018 and Phase 3 is due for completion in Summer 2020.

Underlining our credentials for high-quality workspace for start-ups and SMEs to thrive, we built the Somerset Energy Innovation Centre (SEIC) for businesses to collaborate and exploit opportunities in the low carbon sector. This is a catalyst for innovation, providing space and expert support to the businesses at the heart of the growing low carbon energy supply chain.

Investment in infrastructure is a key part of Somerset County Council’s economic strategy as the authority works to make sure the county remains attractive to investors. The SEIC campus has an important role to play in maximising the local economic benefits from the development of Hinkley Point C - the largest construction project in Europe.

Councillor David Hall, the Council’s Cabinet member for Resources and Economic Development, said:

“To support the long-term economic future of the county we need to be ambitious and look long-term, and the SEIC campus development is an important part of that picture for us. Prosperity pays for everything and bringing jobs to Somerset improves people’s lives - we’re making that happen.”
